        I tried all the advertisement type, but could not change the value of the flag to 0x1a. Could anyone help? By the way the flag value 0x1a means I would like to turn off the "BR/EDR not supported", turn on "Simultaneous Le and BR/EDR to Same Device Capable (Controller)" and turn on "Simultaneous Le and BR/EDR to Same Device Capable (host)" . Thank you

 PSoC 4BLE/PRoC BLE only supports BLE and is not compatible with Bluetooth BR/EDR. So it is not possible to change these values.

        Hi BMAH, thanks for reply. However if the kit cannot support Bluetooth BR/EDR, in 100 Project in 100 days, for Project #009: Dynamic Broadcaster - Changing Advertising Packets and Project #008: GAP Broadcaster, How you could approach the function of advertising packets to nearby iBeacons? In my view the flag of ibeacon packet should be 0x1a?

 Hi,

   

 

   

In those projects we haven't updated the specific fields in the flags that you mentioned in the first post.

   

We can update the field only related to discovery mode(even in firmware).

   

 

   

Only in Dynamix broadcaster we are updating the advertising data(manufacturer specific data).

   

 

   

Ibceacon spec hasn't mentioned requirement of  0x1A for the fields.We have to select the fields of the flags as per the capability fo the chip. 0x1A field is the "length of the manufacturer specific data+type of data field (0xFF)".Refer the link http://www.warski.org/blog/2014/01/how-ibeacons-work/ which gives more details about the advertising data for ibeacon.
